Here I am again … just like I promised! (This is my 2nd post for today … so make sure you scroll down and check out the beautiful cards I received in the mail today.) Did you remember that I said yesterday that I wanted to try a new challenge? I have found this great challenge site (I think it was via Sandra’s blog or maybe it was Kasey’s?? or both!!! 😀 ) … and decided to play along. The Friday Mashup! challenge this week is to create a card that has “soft texture” and/or is a “Get Well” card. I decided to combine the two elements into the one card. (Click challenge pic to visit blog!) Here is my challenge entry …
So … my “soft texture” is the faux silk technique that I have used on the main image panel. It does look like soft floaty silk … doesn’t it??? 😉 If you would like to kow how to get this “look” … I have included technique instructions on my card recipe at the end of the post. I did combine this Friday Mashup! Challenge with the latest Clean & Simple sketch. It is a GREAT sketch!
Well … it is another rainy, miserable day. I spent the morning taking my mum to the hospital for her pre-op visit … and then we went to visit Dad’s grave. Mum is keen to order the plaque and wanted some ideas for wording. We are gradually crossing off tasks that she needs to do before she goes into hospital on Monday. (More to do tomorrow!!! 😉 ) It is “State of Origin” Football tonight … and being the only Queensland supporter in a house full of New South Wales supporters … I might hibernate to my bedroom … with my laptop and do some overdue blog hopping in front of the footy! 😀 I have missed you all … and feel an overwhelming urge to visit! 🙂 On a cold, wet night … this sounds like a good plan … don’t you think??? See you tomorrow! Hugs xxaxx
